07/13 Playlist – The Update

retroheadphones

Its summer and hot right now and everyone is stuck in their cars during traffic. This is the updated playlist from my 04/13 playlist, it complements it but it has its on feel to it as well. Luckily since I moved my iTunes library things are much easier. Now I’m back to syncing my iPods and plugging them into the car. I picked up a few iPod Classic just in case I needed a few more, since all the connections for iPods in the cars are still the 30pin not the new type and they don’t work with the iPhone 5 platform. So new iPods can’t connect to even 2014 vehicles from what I have seen. So for now I’m sticking to the classic iPods which are just huge hard drives for my music.

SomethingFromNothing1

A documentary on rap music and its rise to global prominence.

SomethingFromNothing2

If you have any inclination to hip hop then you will love this movie, its about the art of hip hop & rap over the past 40 years with an inside view from Ice T. Going from the East Coast to the West Coast, you get a taste of all the talent and what they did to get where they are, and what they believe in and what is there process for their art form. Honestly it was amazing watching some of them freestyle like that, watching Q-Tip, Run DMC, Eminem, Dr Dre, Red Man, and so many other talented people in this documentary doing their thing is inspiring and a must watch for anyone who loves music.

Fresh Prince aka Will Smith Sings @ Gabrielle Union’s Birthday

There is no question that I am a huge fan of Will Smith, and I was too young to go to any of his concerts but this video says it all. He is just as good as he was when he was young, I loved it when he started singing the old school songs. Gabrielle Union is one lucky woman to have him freestyling at her birthday, it looks like it was a ton of fun. I still listen to Will Smith’s old school hits.

Something From Nothing – Trailer

‘SOMETHING FROM NOTHING: The Art of Rap’ is a feature length documentary about the runaway juggernaut that is Rap music. At the wheel of this unstoppable beast is the film’s director Ice-T, who takes us on a deeply personal journey interviewing the biggest names in the game and uncovering how this music of the street has grown to dominate the world.

I have been a fan of Hip Hop & Rap since I was a kid, I didn’t even know what it was, I just knew that I liked it and I liked somethings more then others. For some reason I can relate to this music documentary and I am fan of ICE T, I just like the guy’s personality, cool and smooth.

Childish Gambino – Heartbeat

This is one of the songs that I have had on repeat and stuck in my head for a while now and I was surprised that Donald Glover is the artist behind since it isn’t the name he uses as an artist. Community’s Donald Glover is not only an hilarious actor, he is also a talented rapper who goes by the name Childish Gambino. Here is a video for one of his latest songs called “Hearbeat” and its a very cool video, and I have to say Glover has a really solid flow on the mic.

Mike Shinoda – Wednesday Was A Good Day (Remix)

I seriously love this song, I love the original and this remix is priceless from Mike Shinoda. A very cool update to an old school song, I love the funny stuff added but still keeping it smooth. Mike Shinoda is the rapper from Linkin Park and Fort Minor one of my favorite artists.

I liked the original “Wednesday” a lot; wanted to add a little homage to the Ice Cube original in the beat, so I remixed it.

Karmin Music – Amazing Musicians

This is an amazing music duo, that girl is seriously amazing, her singing capabilities are off the charts. She is sounds like a combination of Gwen Steffani and Nicki Minaj and her facial experssions are pirceless. They execute each one of these songs perfectly, I wonder why they haven’t been signed yet and have their own album. Check out their youtube channel.
